Standing on the Side

Song by Lastufka Kinley

BANDCAMP

“Standing on the Side” was written and recorded in 2016 by Lastufka Kinley. Darryl Kinley and I wrote dozens of songs together in high school, none of which were ever released commercially.

However, we reunited in 2016 to begin writing again and released “Standing on the Side” as a free promo single in February of that year.┬áThis was our first new song in over ten years. A music video was produced to accompany the single.

Lyrics

I heard the news today, it didn’t go your way
the roads that you choose, they all have their dues
“Help me”, you would say, you have no way to pay
with your back against the wall, first you teeter then you fall

now I’m standing on the side of your life
and I can’t look any more, until you choose another door

“Come back”, you would say, on your knees but not to pray
but you can’t find remorse, still I have no recourse
a bump every day, keeps the truth at bay
the damn things you say, I can’t help you out today

now I’m standing on the side of your life
and I can’t look any more, until you choose another door

we heard the news today, it didn’t turn your way
the river can be hard, counting on a friendly card
“The last time”, you swear, but it falls on deaf air
this was to be the year, but you’re still playin’ games here

now I’m standing on the side of your life
and I can’t look any more, until you choose another door
